Bill Maher was a knack for missing the point entirely. With a smug, self-righteous tone, he often assumes a superior position that some might mistake for a sign of intelligence.
However, his analyses are often comprised of garden-variety liberal talking points with a dash of atheist self-righteousness.
Though he is wrong 99% of the time, even a blind squirrel finds a nut and in his condemnation of radical Islam and the leftist who work to shield Muslims from criticism, he is 100% spot-on!
Though he holds no love for Christians, even Maher is quick to note that there is a tremendous difference between Christian fundamentalists and Muslim fundamentalists.
Namely, Christian fundamentalists don’t murder, maim and blow things up to demonstrate the goodness of their faith.
In a recent segment of his show, Maher laid-out the truth plainly and took-on both radical Islam and the left:
“How many terrorist attacks, Muslim-inspired terrorist attacks have there been in the last 20, 30 years? And how many Christian-inspired? … They [Islamic terrorists] are trying to get a nuclear weapon. I don’t think there are any Christian groups trying to get a nuclear weapon.”
Maher also addressed the blinding hypocrisy in the left’s hatred for Christianity and their willingness to offer a pass to Muslims who commit horrible acts against homosexuals.
“Where are the liberals to stand up for them? The people who could not abide apartheid for one second, somehow when it comes to ‘gender apartheid’ as it comes to so many places around the world, they are not to be heard. There are millions of Muslims around the world who are gay and have no one to stand up for them, and I didn’t hear any of it this week. In ten Muslim countries you get the death penalty for just being gay. Could we have a little perspective on this issue? Size matters. Why aren’t liberals denouncing violence against gays in Muslim nations?”
Credit where due: Maher is 110% correct on this issue. It has become painfully evident that Western liberals are not truly concerned with social justice; if they were, we would be hearing condemnations of Islam and efforts to combat Shariah.
No, for the left, there is not ideological purity- only a desire to tear-down the pillars of Western culture (even if that means replacing them with ideologies that are infinitely more-oppressive and brutal).
Now that the leftiest of the left has broken from the liberal spell, it is time for conservatives to demand that other liberal media personalities either join us in condemning Islamic tenets or otherwise announce that they are loud and proud hypocrites.
